A fashion show was recently staged along the Seine river in Choisy-le-Roi commune, in Paris, France, to mark the inauguration of a mural painting on the dyke wall which lines the Seine riverbank.

Entitled ‘France - Vietnam Spring’, the mural measures 3.5 metres in height and 40 metres in length. The work was carried out in June by Thuy and her colleagues at the New Hanoi Arts Group, including Tran Dinh, Huy Quan, Cao Quyen and Dinh Huy.
